When I’m in a hotel room I usually have the television on for company until I go to bed. In addition, I find the Japanese culture very different to our culture. We enjoy yum cha whereas they e HKU drinking green tea 🍵 and watching baseball at bars for company rather than at home 🏡 soaking up the atmosphere. I came to japan in the company of my brother last month. It was a long journey and I was grateful for his company. I’m in my friend Tomio’s house. I enjoy his company. He’s just popped upstairs to get a book. His elder brother has popped to a bank to get some cash whereas his younger brother has popped into a shop to get some violin scores. Rika will pop in and see us later. Her boyfriend too will pop over and visit us tomorrow. They’re good company. Rika said she deserved a promotion but instead her colleague was given the promotion because her boss is biased towards her colleague. I said that’s the way the cookie crumbles. Apparently her manager is also biased against her but in favour of her colleague. Oh well. She said “don’t talk about it when we’re in company.” Next week I’ll pop over to Rika’s place to see if I could play on her viola. I prefer the company of musicians. Rika’s browsing in a clothes shop. Before she pops in, I’ll go for a browse around a bookshop then pop into the bank to open a bank account. She enjoys her own company and so do I. By the way, she’s just called and said she finally got a promotion. The opportunity that she’d waited for so long has finally come along. Opportunities like this doesn’t always come along. After she left the shop, her friend came along in her car and offered her a lift to a restaurant to celebrate with her. I enjoy strolling hand in hand with my wife along the nearby beach. In fact, I went there yesterday. With only my thoughts for company I lied on the beach reading a book. It felt very enjoyable. Rika’s just arrived. I didn’t realise she had company. When she leaves tonight I’ll keep her company until the bus comes.
